I made a start on this project, which is a set of designs for notecards, a few weeks ago and then got side tracked, mostly because I decided that rewatching all of the Harry Potter films would be helpful. It was, but then again it wasn’t! Still very much a work in progress (these are just my rough workings) but I hope to get these finished so they’re ready to be printed at the start of the new year.

This is another great mural that I only found thanks to Ingress. It’s a little difficult to find as it’s round the side of a housing estate, but if you head for Grenfell Road, W11 (just a few minutes walk from Latimer Road) it’s currently tucked away next to a building site. This also made it a bit tricky to photograph, but here’s what I managed to get.

This mural is hidden away in the back yard of Garden Bar, Latimer Road (W10). The only reason I stumbled across it is that it’s an Ingress portal! Remember, if you’re thinking of signing up to play Ingress… Vive la resistance!
My A-level art teacher always said I have the attention span of a butterfly, and really she was quite right. I got distracted from the other project I was trying to finish, so this is what’s been occupying me this week. Still not quite finished, but almost!
If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that there’s a spot just by Queens Park station that’s been changing hands between street artists for a while now. If you want to see previous work that’s been featured on that wall then click here. In August this gorgeous piece by @himbad_ turned up. A lovely splash of colour, I wonder how long it will be until it’s replaced by something else.
